Edge of Thorns 3 - Pt 34Part 34
No, he's definitely telling the truth.
Nathan rose from his seat. It wasn't fair, what he'd put Gabriel through, especially when he knew in his gut that it wasn't his fault. Alton's suspicions or not, his guardian angel just wasn't the manipulative type, and the writer moved to the seat beside him again, touching his shoulder.
"I believe you," Nathan said again. "And I'm sorry for all that. Personally, I think it's Raphael behind this."
"Probably," Gabriel agreed quietly, wiping his eyes. "But it's still true that Lumiel's fears are reasonable. Though I'm seldom portrayed in direct conflict with him, it's still generally believed that he is my enemy. The same with Raphael. Michael is the only one who is constantly portrayed fighting Lucifer." He drew a deep breath and turned to his charge. "Perhaps we should both approach him next, just to be sure. Belief aside, Micah still loves Alton, and if he was the one to set Superbia on her schemes, then he will feel

Episode 6: Victimize
No one said a word until they heard the door slam and the music coming through the floorboards above them. Snow was especially quiet, torn between offering concern for his injuries and remaining cautious. Even once Alistair had vanished upstairs, she still turned to the others -- Zacharriah in particular -- with a worried glance, chewing on her lip. "I think I see now why you wanted us to watch him. He really is a sociopath, isn't he?" She looked back towards the stairs. "I don't know how to react to him now..."
"What made you think he was joking in the first place?" Parker asked her, his eyebrow raised. Snow shot him a glare.
"Have you ever seen him with your Sight?" she asked incredulously in return. The other wizard crossed his arms and nodded emphatically.
"Damn right I have! And it doesn't bother me."
"And you still trust him?"
Parker scowled. "I said it before, and I'll say it again: Alistair has never steered me wrong. He's my friend, an

I came here to ask; I should ask.
Nathan swallowed so loudly, he was sure the angel heard it, but he turned to face Gabriel and did his best to smile, despite what he was about to do. "It's about Alton. He's... well, to say he's worried about the Sins is a bit of an understatement. He came over for lunch today and practically broke down in my kitchen." He rubbed the back of his head. "Is it normal for the Devil to be this paranoid? I mean, because knowing that's who he is makes it all even weirder."
"It's unusual for Lumiel, yes, to not have a handle on things." Gabriel motioned for him to take a seat again, waiting until he moved to an armchair across from him. "If it weren't for seeing first hand what the sisters have done to him, I would suspect he trying to gain your sympathy through his usual, deceptive means." The corner of his mouth quirked up. "And even if he is that frightened, it's still in his nature to exaggerate."
"I don't think he was exaggera
Let the Sparrows InI.
Blackbirds rest on the power lines,
their silhouettes form the notation
to a dawn song set on the sheet music
of telephone poles contrasted by the sun.
Curled leaves are land mines littered
on the lawn where imprints of twigs
and a nurturing robin's tracks collect.
Branchlets and leaflets stem from
porch step railings and mailboxes;
the numbers read odd on the east,
even on the west side of the asphalt:
The engraved letters on
the siding reads, "Davis."
This house is home to family
so let the sparrows in.
with its branching hallways
furniture rooted to the floor
family, friends, the occasional
out from home.
Let the sparrows in; let
Let the door's
loosen—let the door stand ajar
be let open
the night owls and
let the doves
in pairs in the iridescent
Let the sparrows in.
